Ukraine's Ministry of Health is planning to update a unified register of diabetic patients in accordance with Law of Ukraine "On Protection of Personal Data." The appropriate draft order approving the Regulation in terms of the register for diabetic adults was issued by the Ministry for public discussion, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

The current procedure of keeping the register for diabetic patients was approved by MHU Order No 365 in 2009, pending entry into force of Law "On Protection of Personal Data." As noted by analysts of the Ministry, the order does not comply with current legislation on protection of personal data. So, the register of diabetic patients is not functioning properly.

According to analysts of the Ministry, the new unified register will ensure the planning of drugs and medical devices purchased by state and local budgets for diabetic patients. In total, over the last year, the Ministry bought medicines, medical items, equipment, and vehicles for 3,181.7 million UAH. Of those, consumables for diagnosis and treatment of diabetes in the amount over 7 million UAH.

In 2014, about 120 million UAH is envisioned to reimburse the cost of anti-diabetic drugs – within the project on reference pricing of anti-diabetic drugs in Ukraine.
The government is constantly working on favorable conditions for this category of patients (including the kids). Thus, in the end of last year, the appropriate Ministry established the first Ukrainian Scientific-Methodical Center "School for self-monitoring of diabetes in children," opened in the framework of State Program "Diabetes 2009-2013," experts note.
